Review + Giveaway ~ Full Throttle by TC Archer


Fast cars and a smokin' hot passion...

Rex intends to own and drive his own car, but that will cost him millions up front. Last season was a disaster, thanks to a nasty break up, but it taught him a lesson and helped sharpen his focus on what he needed to do: Win every race. And stay away from pretty girls. The last thing he needed was to learn that his new head mechanic, Jimmy James, was the gorgeous redhead pin-up walking around his pit like it was some kind of dance floor.

Gail "Jimmy" James is the first female NASCAR mechanic. As if competing in a man's world isn't tough enough, her bombshell figure bellies her genius IQ, and the pit is no place for either. Nothing Jimmy knew about Rex Henderson the driver prepared her for Rex Henderson the man. But Jimmy has no time to dwell on her feelings as strange mechanical problems curse Rex's car. Whether sabotage or her own mistakes, Jimmy must stay one step ahead of trouble if she's going to keep her job, and keep her driver alive...
 
I really like Gail’s character; she made a great female lead. How could I not like a woman with her skills? She's beautiful, well-educated, and competent, which made Rex’s instantaneous attraction more realistic. As for Rex a sexy man with a smooth southern drawl, whats not to love? I am a huge NASCAR fan and the amount of research and knowledge was remarkable, but sometimes the details about the inner workings NASCAR overwhelmed even me. The suspense side of this book often went too far, but the author pulled it together in the end.
